What causes painful bump in the thigh?

I have what seems to be a strained muscle in my thigh. You can actually feel it under the skin. It s like a painful bumpy rope in my upper inner thigh. Is it normal to feel the muscle itself? It s like hardened tissue under the skin. YYYY@YYYY

Hello,

It can be contused muscle. Consult an orthopaedician and plan for an MRI scan to get a better clinical picture.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
